About this author

I've messed around with writing for years but didn't get too serious until lately. I write numerous genres including space opera, science fiction, fantasy, and comic horror. I've even dabbled in romance.

I've got quite a few short stories in print and I'm working on publishing my entire space opera series. Check out details at http://www.altairanempire.com and http://www.jaletac.com

My day job involves a planetarium, a starship simulator and lots of school children.

I'm glad you're enjoying the series! At this point, I'm not planning on any more stories about Dace. Her story is told. I do have a couple of short stories besides Paltronis' recruitment story. I just found out that most of them are now out of print, so I have plans to compile a short story collection of Altairan Empire stories. Probably in 2016 sometime.

I have several stand-alone novels planned for the universe, at different times both before and after the series' time frame. But I'm currently at work on a Master's thesis and several fantasy series.

The books and stories are coming. Promise. I love the universe too much to leave it behind forever, too.(less)

Netflix is a wonderful thing. So many bad movies...

Sinbad and the Minotaur (2011) was an abomination. My son summed it up well. "This is a bad D&D campaign. On film." Nothing could save it from the MST treatment after that. We also decided it would make a fun D&D campaign with a few tweaks.

Cast of good guys:
Sinbad - looks good with his shirt off, supposed to be a thief but we never saw... Read more of this blog post »
